Gutter Helmet®: Keeping your Gutters Safe from Elements

By August 17, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Like the other exterior components of your home, gutters can also suffer from wear and tear due to overexposure to elements. The weather is something that we cannot control; the only way to prevent damaged gutters is to install protective systems like Gutter Helmet®.

What is Gutter Helmet?

Gutter Helmet is a protective cover installed over your existing gutters. It is made of high-quality and lightweight aluminum reinforced with horizontal stiffening ribs. Gutter Helmet is held in place using aluminum alloy brackets.

This type of gutter shield has a textured surface where water clings. The water then enters through a 3/8-inch slit where leaves and other fragments cannot enter. The debris falls over the curved edge instead and into the ground.

With Gutter Helmet, you can prevent:

  • Debris buildup in gutters and downspouts
  • Damage in foundation and roof
  • Nesting in gutters
  • Landscape erosion
  • Damaged gutters due to elements overexposure

How Can Gutter Helmet Keep Gutters Safe?

As Gutter Helmet is installed over your existing gutters, it adds an extra layer of protection. Gutter Helmet also uses heavy-gauge aluminum brackets that keep both the cap and gutter in place even under strong winds and heavy rainfall.

Gutter Helmet can handle 22 inches of rainwater per hour, which is twice the highest recorded rain amount in the US. This means that your gutters and protective shield can withstand the heaviest rainstorm.

When winter comes along, Gutter Helmet can also reduce ice dams. When the water melts and rolls down the roof, Gutter Helmet can catch the water effectively so that it won’t pool and refreeze at the corners of the roof.

Gutter Helmet will only work when properly installed by a gutter guard company Sioux City IA, and the local area, like Gutter Helmet of Siouxland.
